Here is an idea for old worn out sweaters.
Now that temperatures are dropping faster than the leaves, its time to switch out our closets.
Soooo, as you pull out those old, favorite wool and cashmere sweaters,
if you see any that have holes in them, send them to these folks.

They do not want good sweaters - give those to homeless shelters or resale shops.
They just want your holey, damaged, shrunken sweaters.
They are going to recycle them into rugs, but don't want to take good sweaters away from people that need them.
Please send sweaters to: Wool Sweaters PO Box 2603 Glen Burnie, Maryland 21060-2603 United States
